For years, the importance of strength training for golfers was maligned or dismissed. But now that more and more golfers have turned to strength training to augment their game with outstanding results, we now know that proper strength training is an absolutely critical factor in improving not only the golfer’s overall fitness level, but in dramatically improving his or her game as well. In Strength Training for Golfers, John Little offers a workout and training schedule specific to the unique fitness needs of the golfer. The result of a successful ten-year study, the Max Contraction™ exercises included in this book specifically target the muscles used in the golf swing to help increase strength, flexibility, and muscle endurance, and add, on average, up to twenty additional yards of distance off the tee.
John Little has been a personal trainer for more than a dozen years. The author of over a dozen books on health, fitness, and exercise, including The Art of Expressing the Human Body, Max Contraction Training, and Body by Science, Little has been hailed by Ironman magazine as “one of the leading fitness researchers in the world.” He resides in Ontario, Canada.
